Japanese Chin Puppies
Description: The Japanese Chin is a lively little dog with a dainty appearance who loves to cavort and play. They have a compact carriage and profuse coat. Their movement is stylish, lifting their feet high when in action, and carrying their tail proudly curved or plumed over their back. They are higher in stature than their cousins, the Pekingese, but still very small in appearance. They have a flattened face, large eyes and a very round skull. A gentle and affectionate breed, they are meticulously clean and very easy to house break. Some owners claim they are much like a cat in their cleanliness and habits. They are very playful, enjoyable and get along with almost anyone. This includes children, strangers and other pets. They are sensitive, mild mannered, low in activity and high in fun. They are intelligent, charming and sophisticated. Japanese Chins are said to have strong personality traits, such as strong likes and dislikes. If you enjoy an affectionate, playful lapdog, then a Japanese Chin would make an excellent companion.
